Your responsibilities as our Sales Coordinator will include:

  • Ensuring that customer requirements (e.g responding to quotation requests with competitive quotes and seeing these through to successful resolution) are met in a professional and timely manner
  • Building effective working relationships with internal stakeholders, including Account Managers, wider Sales team, Trade teams and Customer Care, ensuring all customer requirements and expectations are met
  • Establishing strong working relationships with new and existing customers, ensuring regular and proactive contact (e.g. encouraging utilization of web platform & online accounts), to support the development of increased volumes and new business opportunities
